The Closing Of Winterland: Easter Eggs

The The Closing Of Winterland DVD contains a number of 'Easter Eggs.' This list is taken from r.m.gdead:

Disc One

Easter Egg #1
From the Set I Song Index menu, select Intermission from the list. When the blue rose appears, press your DVD remote's ENTER button. A short clip from the Steve Parrish's interview will play. There are three more pieces of this interview that play depending on how many times you have pressed the ENTER button.

Easter Egg #2
Immediately after watching the end of Set II (Around and Around), yet another blue rose appears. As soon as it appears, press your DVD remote's ENTER button. The rose will then seamlessly break into five different smaller roses. Each has a selection highlight beneath itself. Those selections lead to a Mickey interview, another Parrish interview, and three still photos.

A small barely visible dot will appear just to the right of the rose on the left side of the screen. Press ENTER to see another short clip from the Steve Parrish interview.

Easter Egg #4
Again from the visible lyrics menu, turn the visible lyrics setting ON, then move the cursor to the Main Menu button. Push DOWN on the DVD remote.
